Hollyhurst Lodge Residential Services for Adults with Learning Disabilities
Hollyhurst Lodge in Darlington is a residential care home with nursing which delivers 24 hour care and support for 2 people in a self-contained bespoke lodge adapted to meet their individual needs.
The service was specially designed in partnership with local commissioners and community teams to provide personalised support for 2 people with complex histories. Hollyhurst Lodge was developed based on the specific individual requirements of the service users. These include individual lounges that have been decorated with the support of their families, a secure kitchen designed around the individual and a private garden.
People may come to Hollyhurst Lodge for many reasons, including people who are living with a learning disability who have a long history of complex behaviours. These individuals may also have additional mental and physical ill-health and behaviours that challenge service delivery.
At Hollyhurst Lodge we believe that everyone should be treated as a full and valued member of their community with the same rights as everyone else. Our goal is to enable people to structure their time; build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure as appropriate to their individual needs. Community based activities give people opportunities to meet other, experience new activities, participate in leisure activities and practice social skills. Activities depend on individual preferences and can include a variety of community based and educational choices.
